My best friend, Mate, told the kids that if they made their AimsWeb data goals that we set at the beginning of the year, then she would fly out to visit them and we would have a Mac and Cheese party. Well the kids not only met the goals, they went above them!
|I told Mate that the kids might be shy at first. Boy was I wrong!|
|Mate made colored macaroni and we got to spell our names with it!|
|Mate wrote and illustrated a book on the history of mac and cheese for the kids. Thomas Jefferson was the first person to serve it in the U.S.!|
|We did a cheese tasting and made a graph of our favorite!|
|We made 3 kinds of mac and cheese. The broccoli mac and cheese was the kid favorite and the gouda mac and cheese was the grown-up favorite!|
|The chefs (and Mrs. Jynette who is not pictured)|
|We also got to make macaroni SAINTS signs!|
